This sad little vintage tole painted table needed some love and care. It came from Mr. K's family so I felt like I wanted to save it. This piece would make a really cute shabby chic end table.
There was a lot wrong with it, to start with the front edge was bent and rusted. The paint had cracked in places.
I straightened the metal tray and gave it a coat of, (you know what's coming) chalk paint, of course, to hide it's many flaws.

Then I added a French graphic from one of the stencils I had ordered off Amazon. Next I decoupaged two Eiffel Tower images from paper napkins to the top.

When everything was dry I lightly sanded the stenciling and high points of the tray.
That's it, done. Pretty simple transformation.
